Termite's WWW protocol
Termite features a web browser with full navigation and bookmark features
to make access to the complex structure of the Web easy, and support for
a wide variety of obscure (and even incorrect) dialects of HTML. Termite
supports the full HTML 2.0 specification (with all features of forms,
including text areas), with many HTML 3.0, HTML 3.2 and Netscape
Termite's web browser has many advanced features, including:
- A built-in incremental GIF decoder so you can see images as they download instead of having to wait for the whole file. Fancy mode is also available to make the images appear in blocks rather than lines. XBM images are supported too - any other images (eg. JPEGs) are processed by ChangeFSI.
- Incremental HTML parsing, so you see the page as it's being downloaded, instead of having to wait for the entire text.
- Automatic filetype detection, including an automatic download-to-disc option for undisplayable types. (You even get a Termite ZModem-style download progress window.)
- Support for FTP and WAIS via proxies (and built-in Gopher), plus the ability to allow some or all web pages to come through a proxy (so you can get pages from overseas through a proxy, which can be faster).
- Any number of web windows may be opened simultaneously, with easy-to-use navigation toolbar that's also very small, so you can view more of the page.
- Configurable memory cache to make stepping back through pages you've vistited already easy. You can also view pages with no images except those already cached.
- Converts HTML to a draw-file which you can save out and print. Can also save the source, download links and save selected images in original or Acorn format.
- Full support for background colours, including the ability to work out what colour to anti-alias the text to, giving smooth fonts whatever the background. Termite is the only browser on any platform to support this.
- Unique smart-quotes feature to turn sexless quotes into better-looking smart quotes.
